Help shape the future of conservation in Canada

Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) is the nation’s largest wetland and waterfowl conservation organization. Our work is innovative. Our work is collaborative. Our work is delivering solutions to the country’s most pressing environmental concerns including climate change, flooding and invasive species. As a volunteer member of DUC’s board of directors, you’ll help guide the programs and strategies that are shaping the future of conservation in Canada.

Join a community of leaders and change makers

DUC’s board of directors is made up of professionals and philanthropists from across Canada and the United States who volunteer their time and talents. Our work also requires that we work closely with a host of influential stakeholders who also rely on Canada’s land, water and wildlife.

We’re at the table with all levels of government, providing insight and guidance on policies that affect water and wildlife, as well as the economic health and prosperity of communities across the country. We’re a trusted partner among industry groups looking for environmentally conscious ways of operating their businesses. We work hand-in-hand with agricultural producers and are a sought-after resource among city planners and developers. As a board member, you’ll play a leadership role within this community of conservation leaders and change makers.
